of law. >> well, the detroit decision obviously was sad for the people who came to depend on pose those pensions but it's good for democracy. you can't have in a city or town, cronies getting together and awarding themselves fat pensions they don't pay for and having the liability then become the liability of people who were not even party to the bargain. in this case, if the judge had upheld the pensions, ultimately they probably would have become the liability of people all across michigan who had nothing to do with setting these liabilities in the first place. so the decision does tell cities that you have to be responsible when setting pension promises and if you aren't responsible, you can look forward to something like this where you have to default. >> now let's look in the rear view mirror. what are your opinions on how detroit ended up in bankruptcy? >> well, detroit is a remarkable story of urban decline. it's lost three-quarters of its population. it's a big empty place. i don't think that was just some kind of natural industrial revolution. you think about the car industry s
